Step into the ring with Classic Boxing, a modern online tribute to Activision's 1980 boxing game. This intense match-up features a top-down view of two skilled boxers, one white and one black, battling it out for victory. Get up close and personal to land powerful punches on your opponent, causing them to stagger back. Strategy is key as long punches score one point, while closer, more powerful punches score two. There are no knockdowns or rounds in this fast-paced game. A match concludes either when one player lands 100 punches (a "knockout") or after two minutes have elapsed (a "decision"). In the event of a decision, the player with the most landed punches emerges as the victor. Ties are also possible, adding to the excitement. Lace up your gloves, unleash your iron fists, and step into the ring for a thrilling boxing showdown!

Activision's Boxing

Boxing is a video game interpretation of the sport developed by programmer Bob Whitehead for Atari. It's one of the first games created by Activision and is based on an unreleased 1978 arcade game called Boxer, from Whitehead's previous employer, Atari, Inc.

The action-packed boxing game is designed for one or two players and is played from an overhead perspective. Each game lasts for two minutes, and the player with the most points at the end wins. You earn one point for a long jab, two points for a powerful close punch, and a whopping one hundred points for a knockout. The classic boxing game offers two difficulty levels, which can be set individually for each player. When it was released, the game received praise for its simplicity, avoiding unnecessary complexity by automatically selecting punch types for the player.
